PSA pg 9 1-3-19

Putnam Science Academy has had its fair share of athletes move on to the next level not only to college but also going overseas and even in Hamidou Diallo’s case, the NBA. Two members of the PSA family have really made an impact in the early goings of the season with South Florida big man Alexis Yetna and Gardner Webb’s Jose Perez.
Recently in the American Conference, the 6-foot, 8-inch wing Yetna took home Rookie of the Week, which he has now won twice, for his play at South Florida in the month of December. Alexis has been a machine on the glass corralling 10.9 rebounds per game, which is double the next closest teammate’s total. Yetna is also third on the team in points per game with just under 12 scored a contest.
Jose Perez in his first year for the Runnin’ Bulldogs has now claimed the Big South’s Rookie of the Week three times, once in November and twice in a three-week span during the month of December. Perez, in his freshman year, began the season on the bench but has quickly developed into a go-to player for the Bulldogs logging 27.5 minutes a game, good enough for second on the team. Perez has made his minutes count scoring 16.6 points per game, 2nd on the team, along with grabbing 5.4 rebounds per game. With the play of Perez and knocking off two ACC teams so far in the season, the Runnin’ Bulldogs are 10-5.
